February Box – Valentine’s Day Gift

 

Women't Soap Gift

February Valentine Box

Hello, cold world!  It’s cold, even in the Deep South.  I guess you do not needme to tell you that!  This post is not about the cold though,it is about the gift of a February Box!  

The February Box is up on the website and it is simple and sweet,  containing a bag of milk bath salts, along with Amber Romance soap.  Did I mention that it smells good?  The soap also contains Himalayan Pink salt.  The bars are only about 1.5 ounces each, but they pack a fragrant punch.

All of this is nestled in a box and tied with a ribbon.  It makes a great Valentine’s gift for a woman, or a gift for yourself.  If you are anything like me, I really enjoy gifts for moi!

I have only 12 of these boxes and they are priced to sell.  So, warm up with milk bath and sweet soap to get through the cold weather.

December Soap Box

The December Soap Box sold out quickly.  I only made three of them.  If you have not heard about the soap boxes, I will have them every other month.  They will all be different, depending on the season, and they will contain unique goat milk soap that I will not be offering elsewhere.

The December Box is handmade by me!  The top is decoupaged and the outside, as well as the inside is painted with Milk Paint in the shade Brass Buckle (appropriate, since it contains goat milk soap).  The box contains pear shaped soap and some rose clay soap with Himalayan salt.  Both are scented for the Holidays.  There is also an ornament inside the box.  I had so much fun making these boxes!

Gift Soap

The December Box

 The soap box is gift worthy and would make a great “extra” something when something is needed.  I don’t know about you, but I always end up needing something extra to give at Christmas.  Here is a picture of the outside –

December Box Outside

I hope these boxes will provide some joy to the recipients and continue to do so throughout the year.  There will be another box in February!  Hint:  winter.  The next box will be a different creation with some fun soap that signifies Winter and maybe a little bit of Spring.  Spring comes early in the South.  Following that one will be April, June, August, October and December once again!

Activated Charcoal Soap

patchoulimint

Patchouli Spearmint Goat Milk Soap

Activated Charcoal is messy by itself.  The fine powder tends to float up in the air and coat things it lands on (if one is not careful).  It’s tough, I’ll give it that.  It makes a BEAUTIFUL soap, however, and for that I can forgive it.  Our Patchouli Spearmint soap not only smells good, it contains this activated charcoal that has been obtained from renewable sources and it swirls and eddies in the soap.  Magically, the charcoal in the soap does not stain and the lather is white.  Why?  I have no idea.  Have you ever tried a soap containing activated charcoal?  It’s feels quite wonderful on the skin and additionally, you may feel as if the world is going to change, or not.  IF I can brave the charcoal, I may add it to another soap soon.

Orchid Soap

Years ago, I bought some orchid extract to use in a soap recipe.  I never used it.  I tend to do that (unfortunately) but lately, I’m trying not to buy anything I do not need since it’s so wasteful.  I actually have an orchid that I decided I could keep in a semi sunny spot in my living room.  The sun is very filtered there and it stays cool.  I really don’t know anything about orchids, other than my own, and other plants I tend to over love until they just die.  This one has stayed around and I feel somewhat proud of that!  It’s about to bloom as you can see in the picture.  So, of course I started to think about orchid soap and this led to orchid extract.  I forgot what it was supposed to do, so I looked it up.  It makes sense – it’s an exotic flower and it can beautify the skin.  Makes perfect sense.  I plan on making some orchid soap as soon as I can!  Yeah, orchid soap!

Lagniappe

Such an interesting word, Lagniappe.  Derived from several cultures but originating in its current form from the Louisiana French, this word means “a little extra something”.  Applying that, we are offering our bestselling Oatmeal, Milk and Honey goat milk soap in a larger size so it can be loved even more.  Better than that, the price is only a bit more for the extra amount.  vintagelady
